Freezing temperatures possible as cold front pushes south after New Year's Eve

1 to 3 inches of snow expected Thursday after bitterly cold temperatures

Combined with clearing skies and the new snow cover, air temperatures are expected to drop to below zero on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The high temperature will be 22, dropping to a low of only 8.

But that same cold front is expected to dip into Florida late next week, potentially cutting average temperatures in half along the way. Temps will be around zero degrees when the clock strikes twelve on New Year's Eve, and when you wake-up on New Year's Day - those temps will be approaching -10°.

The wind chill values only get worse as the day goes on. Sunday night (NYE), temperatures will be in the 20s across a large part of the region. Highs between 43 and 63, lows from upper 30s to lower 40s.

Saturday will start off with snow covered roads so give yourself a little bit of extra time if you plan to be traveling early. Because a lot of the body's heat is lost through the head and hands, a hat and gloves are essential to staying warm. A tight pressure gradient will develop between the high and a storm system off the coast, so this will lead to a stiff northwest breeze kicking back up.

By Wednesday afternoon, we may have a shot at the freezing mark at least for some! It's the very best way to get an up-to-the-minute forecast on-the-go! A potent Arctic front arrives overnight into Thursday bringing the coldest air of the season. Low: 42. Wind: S/SE 5 miles per hour. Many of these areas are seeing record low temperatures, especially at night, he said.

Wind Chill Advisories will be in effect for all of Western New York beginning at 1 a.m. Sunday and lasting through 10 a.m. Monday. Now is the time to begin preparing for some ice and then cold temperatures.

There is a potential for both freezing rain & snow to fall with this disturbance.
